Trivia

The Realtor sign in front of Joe's house has an actual phone number of 312-257-2738 for Curtiss Real Estate on it instead of the usual 555 exchange. The 257 exchange is invalid for the Chicago 312 area code. See more »

Goofs

When Joe is walking down the hall to the nurse after seeing the dead man go into the room, the elevator behind the nurse opens, but in the next shot, it's closed. This was because of a deleted scene in which Joe's dead wife was supposed to appear in the elevator. See more »

Well acted and surprising
22 May 2004 | by (ny) – See all my reviews

From the info on the DVD cover, I thought this was a going to be a science fiction/horror movie. I was pleasantly surprised at what this was actually about. The plot twist in the film is wonderful. Kevin Costner and the rest of the cast do a convincing and thoroughly enjoyable job with this unique premise. This film reminded me more of a "Field of Dreams" than a "Poltergeist" kind of movie. The cast is revealing. Ron Rifkin (Alias) was a great foil to Mr. Costner. Linda Hunt is perfect in the small role she plays. The director, Mr. Shadyac, seems to have broken out of the comedy mode (Liar, Liar; Ace Ventura) in a big and interesting way here. This is a good one to see if you aren't into horror movies and want something that stirs the little grey cells...I give it a 7 out of 10.
